THE FIRE THIS TIME A New Generation Speaks About Race

by | Read by Cherise Boothe, Michael Early, Kevin R. Free, Korey Jackson, Susan Spain

Contemporary Culture • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

An ensemble of narrators—Cherise Boothe, Michael Early, Kevin R. Free, Korey Jackson, and Susan Spain—take turns narrating stories, poems, and essays about race in 21st-century America. All the narrators bring ample strengths to their pieces—from Early’s deep, resonant voice to Spain’s assured, clear presentation—and they keep this short book moving with excellent pacing. Kevin R. Free is especially consistent, narrating with a voice that urges us to listen not only to the words but also to their author’s intent and purpose. Boothe and Free are also effective, using pauses and subtle changes in tone to draw the reader in. The result is a thoughtful audiobook that raises hopes—but also troubling questions for the country.
